What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lake Mary

Located in the heart of central Florida, Lake Mary offers convenient access to Orlando's attractions, including Walt Disney World, which is just 50 miles away. Despite its easy access to Orlando, Lake Mary delivers a residential, suburban feel. The city is home to three assisted living facilities, with another 54 nearby. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs licenses assisted living facilities, or ALFs, in the state. The state defines these communities as residential care facilities that offer housing, meals and personal care services to seniors. ALFs must obtain a standard license, with the option to acquire three specialty licenses to extend their services.
